The Guy That Drives Her Home

I’m the guy who drives her home
when her options don’t pan out
when she’s lonely and alone
I ‘m the guy that drives her home

The Movie Star

Cause he’s smaller than he is when he is on the screen
when some else’s words can hide the truth
behind the part he plays
you’ve seen his ugly face 
Oh and he is just not good enough for you
That movie stars not good enough for you 

Friend of a Friend (revised)

Hey friend of a friend
I don't like what you just said
but there must be something to redeem you
must be something I'm not gettin'
are you a husband and father?
are you really good and kind?
or are you just that stupid all the time?

Where The Money Goes

I learned that he lived in a mansion by the sea
The painting it shows that he even looked like me
i was quire surprised by geaneology
I'm descended from a rich man.

Don't Say Goodbye On Christmas

Don't say goodbye on Christmas
It scares us that you feel so sad
We will drive to New York City
We'll pick you up and bring you back

Get A Headset Grandma

Get a headset Grandma
Get a headset Grandma
don’t hold the phone to your head that way
swerving like a drunk 
from lane to lane
it’s just a matter of time, someday,
you're gonna kill someone

With Mary by the Ocean

I never walked with mary by the ocean
Never held her hand
Never kissed her in the sand
Beneath the pier
Or heard June Christie sing
Willow weep for me
So sweet and clear

I never fell in love that magic summer
when she was sweet 16
and she had all her dreams
come true
Mary's bright blue eyes are somewhere back in time
I am by her side
But she is on the Jersey shore

Tearing Up This Town

I am tearing up this town
I’ll stuff the pieces in my jeans
i won’t throw them out the window
cause I’m no fan of littering
When I reach the city limits
here’s what I am counting on
all the places that remind me
of your loving will be gone

Every Single Day

She’s showing off the dress I bought her
twirling like the girl that i first met
smiling like the woman she is now
how much better than this could it get?
